General anesthesia is a medically induced state of low reactivity consciousness which is similar to natural sleep.Some studies found that general anesthesia as an independent risk factor could result in a desynchronization of the circadian time structure and cause postoperative sleep disorders characterized by reduced rapid eye movement (REM) and slow wave sleep (SWS),which have signiﬁcant deleterious impacts on postoperative outcomes, such as postoperative fatigue, severe anxiety and depression, emotional detachment and delirium, and even pain sensitivity or postoperative pain of patients.Acupuncture can regulate plant nerve activity by increasing slow-wave sleep time to improve sleep quality.The results of polysomnography monitoring showed that the sleep latency, total sleep time, awakening index and sleep quality were all significant improved after acupuncture treatment.And transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation（TAES） works by stimulating Shu yu acupoints, which is more convenient than the normal electric acupuncture. The purpose of this paper is to study the effect of TAES on sleep after thoracoscopic surgery
Patients scheduled for thoracoscopic surgery under general anesthesia were enrolled. Patients were randomized to transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation group (TAES group) and control group (C group). Patients in the TAES group received continuous transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation for 30min before sleep on one night before the operation, 30min before start of the operation and 30min before sleep for the first, third and fifth night after the operation. The portable sleep monitor (PSM) was performed on one night before the operation and the first, third and fifth night after the operation. The subjective sleep quality using the Athens Insomnia Scale on one night before the operation and the first, third and fifth night after the operation. The subjective sleep quality using the Athens Insomnia Scale were also recorded.

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Diagnosis of disease states by recording the spontaneous electrical activity of tissues or organs or by the response to stimulation of electrically excitable tissue.
